Pierce Brosnan as
Article included FREE with incredible Pierce
Brosnan electronic book!
This segment will
focus on the artistic details of this movie. What I mean by this is that instead of looking at the movie from
its storyline, the movie will be watched through its repetition of
scenes, images, dialogue and how such details reinforce the point of a
scene, a segment, a character, the movie itself.
The movie opens with Pierce
Brosnan looking out the window in London. The view outside appears to be the Thames River with the
surrounding buildings along its banks. This looking out the window is repeated again when Brosnan
arrives at the British embassy in Panama. He looks outside the window and sees the Panama Canal and the
buildings along its shores. These
similar scenes are a wonderful way to show that the character of Andrew
Osnard, played excellently by Pierce
is looking into the “worlds” of what he sees out the window. First there was his past work in Europe as it is repeated to him
as he looks at the Thames, and second there is his present work in
Panama as he looks out the embassy window into the Canal as he talks
about his work in Panama. So
in artistic terms, these two scenes are effective in dividing Osnard’s
work at two continents.
